    Thunderbird Sound Problem ......


    Running TB v1.5.0.4 in Kubuntu 6.0.6

    Has anyone been successful in getting the Thunderbird new email sound alert to work in Kubuntu 6.0.6?

    Have installed all the possible codecs but new email sound in Thunderbird does not work.

    Have Kaffeine, Amarok, Noatun, VLC, juK, RealPlayer, XMMS Kaboodle etc. all installed but nothing seems to make TB new email sound work. Music audios, MP3s, WAV files etc. all work.

    When I open Edit ----> Preferences --->General ----> Advanced in TB I get a choice of either System New Mail Sound or Custom .wav file. Neither selection works. Have tested with different .wav files which have been previously tested directly (outside TB).

    I can't locate a system default email sound either in Kubuntu. A completre reinstall of TB even did not make a difference. Sound works for all other programs such Kopete etc.

    Any help appreciated - thanks! Posts to the Kubuntu and Thunderbird Forums have not had any responses

    Seems you have the same problem as this guy :

    Did you try to preview the .wav file in Thunderbird?

    Yes, did try to preview not one but several wav files (in case wav clip was faulty) but no luck. Same files when clicked via File Browser works.
